Q.Are The Chips From A Yukka Removal Ok To Leave In Soil?
I have recently had 4 yukkas removed and the stumps ground to chips. Is it OK to leave these in the soil for drainage? They were poisoned by drilling holes in the centre 4 months ago, so would there be any residual poison still in the chips? I do intend to add compost and manure to the soil as well before planting anything else. Thank you

It depends on what you used, but some stay in the soil for around 6-8 months. As long as you leave it for that time, then add organic material, it should be fine.
